To repeat, I think trading Richards now is shortsighted and counter productive. If you want him off the books, you buy him out, and it's all that much easier since there's no other buyout candidate on the roster (Nash, I guess, but that's crazy talk).

If trading Richards is the hypothetical discussion, the only teams that make any sense are the ones that have an exceptionally hard time luring/retaining FAs. Think Florida, Edmonton, Tampa, Columbus, Nashville, Phoenix, et al. Even then, I have a hard time finding a fit with any of them save Florida if they want to make an enormous Weiss/Campbell swap, and even then, I'm not sure that makes any sense for either team, though the Rangers certainly get the PP help that's needed/coveted.
